Health iPhAMA-thon 2022

Calling all talented and enthusiastic students to gather and provide solutions that will incubate innovative medical innovations and improve the quality of life of Malaysians. Health iPhAMA-thon is aimed at cultivating creativity and innovative ideas among youths, who will one day be the ‘movers and shakers’ of the country. As Malaysia is moving towards becoming an ageing society by the year 2030, we need to put in place future-proof solutions for health and well-being beyond the curative realm, encompassing the entire continuum of care, which includes predictive, preventive, promotive, rehabilitative and palliative care.
Possible themes include:
  • How to encourage early diagnosis of chronic diseases such as cancer
  • The use of Behavioural Science to boost health-seeking behaviours
  • Tools/apps/devices/programmes to guide nutrition for chronically ill patients
  • Tools/apps/devices/programmes that can increase exercise and an active lifestyle
  • Building the foundation towards an ageing society
  • Tools/apps/devices/programmes that can help people with disabilities
  • Navigation tools to help patients and caregivers
